    and its a sea of red for Romney.

    You see blue along the west coast and upper midwest. And some stuff on the East coast.

    That's just your brain rationalizing what your eyes can't stand to see.

    Those big square states are sparsely populated compared to the east and CA

    The rural areas tend to have more low-information voters. Both sides advertised ferociously in many if not most of the blue states; the persons there made a decision based on that information and the President won easily. Had it gone another week, Romney may have lost even worse.

    Goats and tumbleweeds love Romney or at least that's what I'm led to believe since that's what mainly populates the areas that voted for him.

    What else is funny, ignoring the vast emptiness of Alaska, if you connect all the blue states together in the same manner as the red, it's more or less a similar size.

    It's just an illusion ginscpy, try it sober.

    Romney got the Confederacy, the fly-over states and Alaskan frozen tundra. So much white can't deliver the WH anymore.

    It's even more interesting to look at the individual state maps. Looking at the National Map it's easy to get the idea the Country is divided into a few large areas. But take just Michigan for example and look at the State Red Blue Map. You literally have a couple counties in the SE, and a few others scattered around college towns the Rest of Michigan is a sea of Red.

    If you didn't know how many people lived in each county and looked at the MI map you would conclude the GOP dominated Michigan.
